The Acropolis.

For the same price as a movie ticket you can explore the Acropolis from top to bottom. I’ve seen footage of people visiting the Parthenon many times yet I was still stunned as to how breathtaking the place really is.

Once you’ve hiked up the hill and pass through the gate  (the Propylaia as seen below)  you are hit with the immensity of Parthenon, Doric columns, each seven diameters high, tower over the hilltop as they have for thousands of years.
